Besides that SAMOLED plus display and LTE radio, the Samsung Droid Charge has another thing going for it that's important to many of you guys -- no bootloader monkey business. All you hackery types know what that means; easy custom ROMs and kernels. Lo and behold, we have both for the Charge in a very advanced stage of testing and ready for the public to download and try. Android Central forums adviser DroidXcon is spearheading the Altered Beast project, and he and his fellow developers have things looking and working quite nicely. Having said that, keep in mind this is still a testing release. If you can't handle ferreting out a few bugs now and then, you may want to take a wait-and-see approach.
The ROM is completely deodexed, most of the bloat is removed, working Clockwork recovery built in, and has a custom VooDoo kernel to really speed things up. Best of all, it has great instructions and support. If you're rocking the Charge and hankerin' for some custom ROM love, now's your chance. Two more pictures after the break, you know where to click.
